5.0 out of 5 stars Brokeback will "get you good", 27 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Brokeback Mountain (Paperback)
Whilst being set resolutely in America's west and telling the story of two ranch hands, don't dismiss this wonderful novella as a gay cowboy story. This spare and uncompromising tale of an enduring, yet ultimately unfulfilled love and passion that spans 20 years is a universal one that challenges the reader to explore their views about duty, trust, love and desire within a society that has dictated what is acceptable and what is not, as the two main characters live out their single, disappointing lives. In Ennis and Jack I discovered what it is like to love and yearn for something and someone you can never have and was left asking the question, would I want to have such a grand passion in my life if the cost was such emptiness and longing? Such a love takes these two vibrant and hopeful young men and ultimately makes 'ghosts' of them both. Achingly sad. Beautifully and sparingly told. Annie Proulx delivers a masterclass in short story writing. Don't miss it!
